Is it a human gene, or a suite of genes, triggered by some mysterious stimuli (like feeling kept down by forces you resent), to side with a bully? Why would over 70 million people, scattered in every state but concentrated in some, watch four years of Trump's cruelty -- his petty meanness on Twitter, his caging of kids, his farting in the face of democracy (and decency), his using foreigners as scapegoats, his persecution of certain religions -- and want four more years of that, or 12 more years, or hell! let's make it forever? Those voters liked the cruelty of Trump, the end-stage symptom of a wounded soul looking for vindication and revenge. Imagine Walder Frey had seized the Iron Thone and hosted a Red Wedding for liberals. (See what TeeVee has done to me!)
The performance of meanness. Isn't that what the Proud Boys are all about? The guys in gimme caps in the big new trucks, muscling the big flags through traffic? The people with big guns marching into peaceful settings, just for the hell of owning the libs and scattering the cucks? The spoiling for a fight, the eagerness to bust heads, the need to touch other flesh violently? It's what's been unleashed by Trump. And he's its biggest fan:
It's a show to him. It's a show for them. And we're all watching it too and commenting because it's what's on in the must-see primetime of our lives.
